An Easy Baking Post

The other week I did a whole baking feature showing off my millionaires’ shortbread recipe and photos. As much as I enjoy baking, sometimes I want to have freshly baked goods in the house but just really can’t be bothered.

Let’s face it, it’s nice to pretend to be the domestic goddess sometimes and just scrape by making minimal effort….

Bob’s job means he can come home with all sorts of products sometimes and a couple of weeks ago, one of said products included Dr Oetker Bake in the Box Loaf Cake Mix in lemon and poppy-seed flavour.

August Empties

Better late than never, I’m finally getting round to writing up the August Empties post now that we are 2 weeks into the month. Shameful beauty blogger eh?!

Anyway as I’m writing this, it’s a sunny but freezing day and I’m officially 37 weeks pregnant. I love writing my empties post’s as it’s always fun to see how much I’ve managed to clear out that month but also to share my thoughts on different products I’ve used. In August I used up an outstanding 8 products ranging from skincare to body care and it’s now time to share my thoughts.

What I do with my travel photos once I’ve returned home

As we creep ever closer to the due date of our first child, it’s got us thinking about photos an storage options as no doubt we will take endless snaps of our little one once she arrives.

This realisation that we need to purchase a bigger hard drive for said photos got me reminiscing over our old snaps from the 9 years we’ve been together and in particular, some of our holiday snaps.

Destination 2¬†conveniently got in touch around the same time (a very strange coincidence I will just confirm)¬†and asked me what exactly I did with those holiday snaps and whether I printed them out or stored them in albums or photo frames. They’ve recently found some stats when it comes to travel photos and I thought I’d share them with you below:

“29 per cent admit to leaving snaps on the computer. A further 29 per cent admit to not doing anything with them at all while over 14 per cent go as far as putting them in a separate folder on their phone.

When it came to making hard copies of the images, only 12.5 per cent of holidaymakers make the effort to get them printed. The remainder of us either create an album on our phones or share them on social media.”

I will be completely honest and say that I am in that 29% who leave their snaps on their computer as well as not making hard copies either.
